Not even sure where to start this is such an extraordinary place from start to finish. Lodging- the 'tent' is so much more than that. Everyone back home wants to know about the animals you saw and what the rooms are like. I told everyone that our 'tent' was nicer than most hotels. There is running water and a shower in your room. Water is always supplied and the views from your room are some of the most stunning around. Every morning tea and cookies are brought to the tent for a wake up call. Food- we were blown away by the quality and amount of food. I mean it was like 5 star dining whether we were at the camp for dinner and lunch or out for a bush breakfast. Breakfast was usually eaten while out on the morning drive but that doesn't mean you just get the basics. We had french toast, pancakes, cereal, sausage, yogurt, coffee, tea and more while out on the drive. One morning we were treated to an all out breakfast with other guests out in the conservation all with an omelet station and so many choices- what a treat. Lunch was back at the camp each day and each day were different choices with an appetizer then several buffet choices and a dessert. At lunch you were shown the dinner menu with 2-3 choices so you could let them know what you would like. Dinner- we ate all 3 dinners out on the patio/deck and enjoyed the cool night air. Each night was a different cuisine and we were impressed at the chefs wide abilities. Staff- once again we were so impressed with how pleasant everyone is and want to make your stay so amazing. Charles was one of our favorites and we enjoyed his pleasant demeanor at each meal. He always had a smile and went out of his way to make sure you had everything you needed. We also had massages from Mercy who was absolutely amazing and has a great touch. Safari- I know everyone must say this but we really had the best guide- Alex. He was so pleasant to talk with and had so much knowledge about the animals and the conservancy. We had the best 3 days with him. He was able to find so many animals for us to see on our first safari- we were thoroughly impressed. He also took us to the village on an unplanned day and we were the only people there. I have a feeling that this took away from his personal time in between drives but he seemed happy to take us and we were very grateful for that visit. We really enjoyed our time visiting the village and we were able to see some animals on that drive that I don't think we would have seen in the other part of the conservancy. This place and and the experience we had far exceeded our expectations and made our first safari quite a magical one. Laurie and Mark V.
Kenya is stunning, Lewa Safari Camp shines!
We visited Kenya for the first time. It did not disappoint. Lewa Safari Camp is home to the endangered black and white rhinos, protected zebras and much much more. The land is sprawling, the animals are plentiful and allowed us up close viewing, and their guides found them for us. It was a magical 3 days. We stayed at two other Elewana camps, This camp is the most rustic of the 3 we stayed at, but do not take that as a slight, the food, service, staff, and guides were outstanding. this experience truly was beyond what we had hoped to see and do.
The best of my safari camp
Elewana Lewa Safari Camp is the best. The grounds are beautiful, the staff was professional. Sacha, the camp manager, was very personable. The room was just beautiful. The food was amazing...top shelf. The common areas were abuzz with people before dinner. Very nice. Alex, our guide and driver, was very knowledgeable about all birds, animals and plant life. There is a little place called the "Hide". You follow a path leading to a small hutish-type area with chairs which opens up to a beautiful view. We saw a zebra, a dik-dik, and Sophia (the local rhino). It was almost like we discovered this ourselves. Great experience! Everything was wonderful. Remember to tip well. Wake up call for morning game drive comes complete with coffee and cookies.
The best hotel during our 14-day trip in Kenya
We spent about 3 nights in Lewa and stay with Sacha and his team. Our room 12 has a great view and it is not bad for 11A/11B. The tent is large and with good privacy. The furniture in the tent are simple with well designed. We saw all big five in Lewa with our guide John's help. We are so lucky to see some baby black Rhinos. People in Lewa Safari Camp are friendly and would try their best to meet their clients' requirement. The food is delicious, though the breakfast box is not so festival. >_< The lunch is a little bit simple but the taste is great. There are so many birds in the hotel and it is definitely a great place to relax your body and soul.
We loved our stay at Lewa Safari Camp! Our room/tent was comfortable and full of nice touches, yet we felt as though we were in touch with the animals and the conservancy af all times. The staff was welcoming and efficient, our guide was amazing, and the food was consistently excellent. We especially loved the bush breakfast we had one morning!
